Larry Hagman: A Dedicated, Beloved Board Member

Polishing a solar panel at a plant in California.

Although best known for his portrayal of oil baron J.R. Ewing on the ground-breaking television series Dallas, Larry was one of the most ardent supporters of renewable energy. For more than a decade he served on our board of directors, participating in the strategic direction of the organization and opening his home in Ojai, California to host board meetings and fundraisers on our behalf.

Larry didn’t just advocate for renewable energy, he incorporated it into his daily life. In addition to promoting solar energy for SolarWorld (“Shine, baby, shine!”), he powered his entire home in Ojai with solar arrays, including the water wells onsite. He was also the proud driver of a Prius.

His love of life and dedication to helping those less fortunate will be greatly missed by our team and by everyone whose lives he touched.
